About this Act

South East based rock and pop act The Monitor Lizards are a newly minted acoustic duo with a colossal repertoire of hits from modern day floor filler all the way back to Elvis and everyone in between such as Queen, the Beatles and Radiohead, so likely they'll have something for everyone. 

They perform as guitar and bass player and both have soulful vocals, playing incredible arrangements of some of the best songs ever written and are a great alternative to a full band as they can do unplugged acoustic sets as well as plugged party sets.
